Looking for information on John R Crook
Information I has is:
William S. Crook (Griffin) was born in North Carolina abt. 1823. He was employed as a blacksmith in Carroll County, Georgia, Flint Hill PO, Fairplay Dist. He married Elizabeth C. ???? who was born in South Carolina abt. 1823. William joined the Confederate Army on June 22, 1861. Originally organized as Company I, 2nd Regiment, 4th Brigade, Georgia State Troops, William's regiment was quickly redesignated as Company I, 19th Regiment, Georgia Volunteer Infantry, and placed into the Army of Tennessee. This regiment from Carroll County, Georgia was known as the "Villa Rica Gold Diggers". It is curious that William has two daughers listed as Elizabeth in the census records. This is consistent throughout the records and there is no indication that one of the Elizabeths was a different relation. William and Elizabeth C. had the following children:
